CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECT
DBA TOPIC: To be finalised.

The need:
- Globally there is a need for a radical socio-economic model to push back the triple challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality.

The Solution:
- To address this need requires a radical approach and has called for a socio-economic model where various role players will intervene not just at community and social level but also on an economic level:

                   Stimulating growth;
                   Encouraging trade;
                   Supporting the small and medium business in South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world;
                   Bringing together social and economic experts and practitioners, research and higher learning institutions,
                   traditional leaders, government representatives, faith-based organisations and non- governmental organisations,
                   to name a few, with the view to finding evidence-based solutions to the problems facing communities globally.
